Suggestion to eliminate one reboot
« on: December 03, 2012, 07:33:03 AM »
Please let me know if there's a down side to this, but I suggest making the overall process more efficient by eliminating one reboot. Specifically, if you change the order of operations so the SFC precedes the Chkdsk with instructions NOT to reboot afterwards. Now, the SFC runs, you initiate the Chkdsk (which really doesn't do anything until after a reboot anyway), THEN you reboot.

The down fall though is you don't want anything done with the files till the file system is fixed.

So running the sfc before the chkdsk could cause problems, but only if the file system needs repairs with chkdsk.

So that is why I made chkdsk first.  :wink:
